Alberto is a wonderful older male. He is very sweet and fun, loves to play tug, knows “drop it” and likes to go for long walks as much as he loves couch snuggling. Though he has a history of being a barker, with training he no longer feels the need to do that, warms up to people quickly and has a puppy like demeanor and play that makes his foster family laugh every day.
He enjoys the company of other dogs that are calmer but likes to play with people more than dogs, so being around dogs that aren’t engaging him in play a lot is best. Alberto loves his crate and can snooze in a crate or on the couch for long periods of time. As long as he gets in his walk and some snuggle time, he is a happy and easy dog.
Although we have seen him warm up to children, a home with older teenagers would be best. Because Alberto has been trained, anyone interested in him will get to have some training lessons to make sure his good behavior is maintained so he doesn’t start barking again. We are so excited to see his progress and what an amazing member of a family he can be.
